All messaging plans can be shared across your entire team, with unlimited users and contacts. Each plan is on a month-to-month term, with no contract, no per user fees, no setup fees and any unused credit will roll over for a period of 90 days.

Yes. Our plans charge for sent and received messages.
Yes. We support two-way MMS (image) messaging in the United States and Canada.
MMS messages are priced at a $0.02 USD premium to whatever plan rate your account is on. For example, if you're in the Starter plan with a rate of $0.032 USD per segment in the United States, an image message would be $0.052 USD.
In addition to sending the image, MMS have the advantage of increasing your available character count limit to 1,600 characters (compared to 160 typically for SMS). Accordingly, you can send longer text messages without incurring multiple segments.
